40 + 10 Acciones
LAQI 40 + 10 Acciones is the Latin American proposal for a fairer world, uniting companies and institutions committed to a common cause with new standards and quality procedures developed to guide our members towards taking “Total Responsibility.” The goal is to establish a set of rules and standards that can be adopted by companies and incorporated into their visions and missions.
The principal objective of this new terminology, offered by LAQI (Latin American Quality Institute) to benefit its members, business and academic communities and society in general, is to define processes and actions that should be undertaken voluntarily by companies and institutions in Latin America based on internationally accepted models and inspired by the principles of institutions such as Global Compact, PRME and the United Nation’s Millennium Development Goals.
The proposal is divided into 5 thematic areas, each designed to promote the concept of Total Responsibility within each interest group while at the same time strongly encouraging the continued evolution of the member companies. Although the topics concern distinct areas, they complement each other perfectly and strengthen the concept of Total Responsibility as a whole.
